As one new technological direction after another is spawned, one thing is becoming clear: It is the combination of new technologies that results in the greatest change. Cloud technology is a prime example of this fact, since it is integrated with, or even enables, many other technologies. One of the greatest benefits of cloud-based applications is the ability to access both data and functionality anywhere and anytime. This leads, naturally, to a strong relationship with mobile device technology, a symbiotic relationship that encourages both cloud and mobile developments.
GlobalWise Investments makes abundant use of the relationship between cloud and mobile. The company, through its Intellinetics subsidiary, provides organizations of all sizes advanced ECM (Enterprise Content Management) capabilities that allow controlled access to large volumes of documents from remote sites through the use of mobile devices. In effect, it frees the company from the confines of its own systems, while providing superior security.
Their system, called Intellivue, is easily and flexibly integrated into existing organization systems, and is especially friendly for small to medium size businesses, a generally under-served market, because it requires no up-front costs. GlobalWise President and CEO, William J. "BJ" Santiago, described the benefits of the company's business model:
"Many in the industry have called our flagship software a 'channel changer' because our user-friendly model is similar to the traditional per click charge standard, but introduces a fixed cost model that appeals to a wider customer base. Therefore, the end-user no longer has to worry about being charged more money for each mono (black and white), color or virtual image scan (i.e. Video, Audio, JPEG, PPT, Excel, etc.). Intellivue™ allows the end-user to scan both hard-copy and virtual images, as well as index, search, and retrieve archived data via the cloud, in the same model in which they buy their products today through their dealer. Instead of a per page or per click charge, there is simply a capacity based monthly subscription fee."
